The 2018 NYCEA conference theme is Embedding English: Literature and Writing in Every Field, which provides a great opportunity for professors and graduate students with a wide range of interests from a variety of disciplines to participate. The conference will take place on Friday, October 19, and Saturday, October 20 at Plaza College in Queens, New York. The location is easily accessible in New York City by Amtrak, MetroNorth, LIRR, subway, and car, so we hope you will plan to join us.
This year’s NYCEA conference will explore the intersection of English with other majors, fields, and disciplines. How does literature connect with different fields? How is writing essential to other majors? In what ways can literature and writing improve the work of students and professionals in all disciplines?
Proposals are welcomed to examine the influence of literature and writing within various fields, helping to enrich every aspect of our culture and society. Submissions are welcome from professors in any discipline and from any location.
Please send 250 word abstracts to NewYorkCEA@gmail.com.
The abstract deadline is August 1, 2018.
